Is now an ok time to buy an Amazon share?

Reddit Stocks

22/07/2021 - 04:19

I’m a young buy and hold investor with under 40k and I’m wondering if it’s worth it to sell some mutual funds to buy a share of Amazon. It’s quite expensive, but it seems like such a promising company, almost like a black swan event for one company to be able to take over so many industries. Does it seem overpriced now or is it a decent time to jump in? Do you all see it gaining higher than the S&P 500 in a decade? Is it very risky to buy a share of Amazon? Thanks in advance for any insights!   submitted by   /u/knowledgelover94 [link]   [comments]

  1. Would you rather? (24/04/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    Would you rather have 1 share of Amazon or 5 shares of Nvidia? I have a IRA with Wells Fargo. I have a variety of Shares in GOOGL, GOOG, Microsoft, APPL, and Amazon. Wondering what people's thoughts on EOY is for something like Amazon and Nvidia. Amazon is sitting around $3300. End of the year possibly could be $4000. So $700ish gain from today if it were to sit around $4000 on December 31, 2021. Now there's Nvidia. Currently sitting around $600. End of the year possibly could be $750ish. So $150ish gain for 1 share So 1 share of Amazon gains you $700. 5 shares of Nvidia could be $750. Now look these are just estimates. They could be spot on they could be way off. Amazon could end the year at $4500. Nvidia could end at $1000. Who knows. All I'm asking is would you rather have 1 share of Amazon or 5 shares on nvidia? Or maybe you have another interest. If not amazon if not nvidia what would you rather have if not either or. I'm only asking because I like both companies but Amazon has been idling for 9 months at the same prices. Nvidia has gained significantly. They both have Alot of potential. Something in my gut tells me Nvidia has more growth than Amazon. Like 5 years later maybe 5 shares of Nvidia nets you more than 1 share of Amazon starting today. Sorry about the 5 paragraph essay and my rambling. Hit me with some conversation please and thank you.   submitted by   /u/SeanEazy [link]   [comments]

  3. Inflation and stock prices (long term) (08/06/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Today I was thinking, and I wanted some opinions on my thought. Inflation is bad for the market, yes. At the same time, though, doesn’t inflation naturally inflate stock prices? I imagine in 1920 a stock trading at $3,000 (Amazon) would be way too expensive for the average person to buy. These days, most people can afford a share of Amazon. I know there are a lot of factors at play here, just trying to put it in Layman’s terms. So my question is, with the power of $1 constantly decreasing, doesn’t that mean share prices would naturally increase over time?   submitted by   /u/DrewD_1847 [link]   [comments]

  4. Amazon stock DD and reason to keep holding (11/02/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    I bought majority of my amazon stock on sep 2020, and now I heard many people saying amzn is not moving and providing any gain for the past few month, so I am going to list few reasons that why you should keep holding the stock. The e-commerce and cloud giant has had a $5 billion share repurchase program in place since February 2016, the last time Amazon bought back any of its stock was the first quarter of 2012, so the streak is 33 quarters of no stock buyback. But with the new ceo coming, he might change and start to repurchase the stock, remember before tim cook take over apple, apple did not give out any dividend, and then it changed. Prime member engagement keep increasing and prime membership is still growing yoy. All major product categories demand continue to raise across globally. Amazon high growing aws and advertising revenue streams are getting more profitable, the advertising division could keep growing and getting some market share from fb and google. Amazon bottom line is improving much better compared to analysts predictions, the last few quarters it beats expectations by a lot. With the covid situation getting more under control, the covid related expenses will mitigate, and amazon will be more profitable. Amazon delivery fleet is growing, I have seen my packages constantly delivered by amazon vans and contractors. In the future, amazon will be less dependent on USPS, fedex and UPS, and might even able to compete with UPS and Fedex. Finally the stock split, with the new ceo coming, this might become possible as well, this will be a positive catalyst that all investors want to see. I will be keep holding my amazon stock, if it really dip further, I will buy more, I will hold amazon stock until I retire.   submitted by   /u/coolcomfort123 [link]   [comments]

  5. A farewell gift from Bezos? (28/04/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Even if it theoretically has no impact on the value of a share, I would still be pretty excited if there was an Amazon stock split. With Tesla and Apple, it still boosted the prices last summer. Amazon's stock is close to an all-time high right now and would definitely be boosted by such news. However, I once heard that Jeff Bezos didn't want a stock that was too cheap because he was worried that the stock would become a plaything of retail investors. What do you think is the likelihood of a stock split? Position: 8 Amazon shares   submitted by   /u/GordonGekkoVienna [link]   [comments]

  6. Shopify vs Amazon (20/02/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Shopify is a very legitimate threat to Amazon's reign as the king of e-commerce. Last year they doubled their revenue again, taking in almost $3bn from merchants around the world. Shopify stores processed just under 9% of all retail e-commerce in the US last year, second only to Amazon that has a 39% market share. Amazon is taking this seriously, it acquired Selz, an Australian company that helps customers "sell digital, physical products and services from one platform".. which sounds a lot like Shopify. Shopify is adding features such as payments, marketing, analytics, shipping, inventory and more for its users at a phenomenal rate. With each feature added, they make up for the fact that each individual website doesn't have the built-in traffic that selling on Amazon comes with. Investors recognise the potential of Shopify, it's latest share price gives it a market cap of $165bn, which is around 55x its revenue last year. If you could pick one stock between Shopify and Amazon based on growth prospects in the next 10 years, which one would it be?   submitted by   /u/sk2977 [link]   [comments]

  7. Was just wondering what to do if you were me (23/04/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    I have a IRA with Wells Fargo. My positions are. 1 Amazon. 2 Google. 5 Microsoft. 10 Apple. I'm not interested in doing anything with Google, Microsoft, or Apple. I want to keep all these. My question is what should I do with my 1 Amazon. Obviously I can just keep it. After it fell $50 today and has fallen past days I'm not to far off my average cost again. I'm interested in Nvidia so I could just sell Amazon and grab 5 nvidia to replace it with. I'm also interested in Tesla, so same thing. Could sell Amazon and grab 5 Tesla or something. Like I said though I could just do nothing. I'm assuming Amazon has the possibility to hit $3500 to $4000 by the end of the year. It hasn't done much movement in the past 9 months though. I'm not a newbie to this stock trading thing just wondering about opinions. 1 Amazon, 5 Tesla, 5 Nvidia, X Shares of something else. Looking for advice. If you're me what you doing tomorrow with my 1 share of amazon?   submitted by   /u/SeanEazy [link]   [comments]

  9. Amazon nears deal to buy MGM Studios for nearly $9 billion (24/05/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    https://www.cnbc.com/2021/05/24/amazon-nears-deal-to-buy-mgm-for-nearly-9-billion.html Amazon is close to a deal to buy MGM for between $8.5 billion and $9 billion. It'd be Amazon biggest acquisition since it bought Whole Foods in 2017 for $13.7 billion. This is a positive news for amazon as it spending big on acquisition to boost the video contents. This will help attract more prime members and let them enjoy more quality contents. This is also a major move to defend the competition from Netflix and Disney+. As the share still trading near $3250, it is still a very reasonable price for investors to buy and hold.   submitted by   /u/coolcomfort123 [link]   [comments]

  10. Why does earnings growth cause share price to appreciate? (08/06/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Why would a company's earnings growth cause it's shares to become more valuable and consequently demand a higher price to acquire? I mean how does earnings growth translate into more rewards for the investor and consequently drive up the value of each share? Is the reward an ever increasing dividend over the years as a company does better and has more money to give out to incentivise investing? What if a company doesn't pay a dividend? For example, Amazon? What is causing everyone to want to acquire shares of Amazon and consequently drive up its share value if there's no dividend payout? Am I just buying into Amazon because I know others will rush to buy it and cause it's shares to appreciate and earn me more money when I sell some day? Are we all just assuming that and that's causing us to buy shares? Why is it automatically assumed that earnings growth would translate into some tangible reward for an investor and cause the share value to appreciate? I mean other than share value appreciation, what reward do investors receive by owning a share of a company? Are we just investing because we agreed upon beforehand that earnings growth will cause a share to appreciate in value? What about if a company kept growing earnings at a good rate for 10 years but the share price just stayed the same? Would anyone have any incentive to invest in that company if it didn't pay out a dividend? Why would I invest let's say $10k into that company that had no appreciation of its share price and paid no dividend?   submitted by   /u/apooroldinvestor [link]   [comments]

  11. When to reinvest longterm holds (29/04/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    I have one (1) Amazon stock that I bought a few months ago and intend to be a longtime hold. When I get more funds, I'd like to expand my position, but its only one for now. However, I've now reached 20% profit. I've been told that its good to sell part of your investment and reinvest whenever your stock reaches 20% profit as its easier to reach 20% profit 5 times than 100% once. However, I can't sell part of an Amazon share, and I can't reinvest my profits directly back to Amazon because its not enough for a second share. What are your strategies on reinvesting longterm holds, especially with small position sizes?   submitted by   /u/flapflip3 [link]   [comments]

  12. Amazon Wins Fight to Throw Out $303 Million EU Tax Bill (12/05/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2021-05-12/amazon-inflicts-another-tax-defeat-on-eu-s-vestager Now Apple beat a much bigger tax bill recently where it was $13 B it turned out was not owed to Ireland, and $303 M is a trifle for a company Amazon's size. It's less than 1% of their European gross income. But I think renewing Amazon's court room power means that there will be at least a brief spike for Amazon today as the word gets out. Notably it could establish beneficial precedent for Nike and Ikea who are having similar tax bill fights. That's been doing on since 2019, though, so it might not be settled any time soon.   submitted by   /u/DoubleTFan [link]   [comments]

  15. Amazon Smashed Earnings Expectations (29/04/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    KEY POINTS Amazon released first-quarter results on Thursday that trounced analysts’ expectations. Amazon shares climbed as much as 5% in extended trading Thursday after the company released its first-quarter earnings, beating Wall Street’s expectations for earnings and revenue. Here’s how the e-commerce giant fared, relative to analyst estimates compiled by Refinitiv: Earnings: $15.79 per share vs. $9.54 per share expected Revenue: $108.52 billion vs. $104.47 billion expected Few companies have benefited from the pandemic-fueled surge of online shopping as much as Amazon. The company notched record profits and revenue last year, while CEO Jeff Bezos announced earlier this month that Amazon crossed more than 200 million Prime subscribers, up from 150 million at the start of 2020. In 2020, Amazon invested heavily on coronavirus-related measures like safety protocols and wage increases for front-line workers. As a result of these costs, Amazon last quarter forecast operating income of $3 billion to $6.5 billion in the current period. Those coronavirus-related costs are expected to slow this year, although on Wednesday, Amazon said it would spent more than $1 billion on pay raises for more than half a million of its U.S. operations workers. https://www.cnbc.com/2021/04/29/amazon-amzn-earnings-q1-2021.html   submitted by   /u/astockstonk [link]   [comments]

  18. I don't understand how earnings / fundamentals affect stock price. (15/02/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    I understand supply and demand. If we think Amazon is going to have high earnings in the future, that looks like a good company to invest in, right? Demand increases. Price increases. But Amazon doesn't pay dividends. So how do I actually make money off of Amazon stock, apart from buying low and selling high (market forces)? Do I actually have any right, as a shareholder, to Amazon's earnings? There's no way I can "cash in" the value of my share with Amazon, right? Any money I make off of the stock must necessarily be made by selling it to another trader. So why are fundamentals/earnings even important? I think I'm missing something but at the moment it seems to be all based 100% off perception of fundamentals rather than the fundamentals themselves.   submitted by   /u/shortyafter [link]   [comments]

Fresh stores are substantially larger, ranging from from 25,000 square feet to 45,000 square feet. Amazon is always looking for a way to defend from walmart and target, amazon fresh store is the perfect answer. Amazon keep improving the logistic warehouses and expanding the delivery network, the fresh store will be easily managed and capturing the low margin market share.

  25. Jeff Bezos to formally step down as Amazon CEO on July 5, Andy Jassy to take over (26/05/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos will step down on July 5, turning the helm over to cloud-computing boss Andy Jassy. "We chose that date because it's sentimental for me, the day Amazon was incorporated in 1994, exactly 27 years ago," Bezos said Wednesday at Amazon's annual shareholder meeting, which was held virtually. Amazon announced in February that Bezos would leave his post later this year. Bezos will transition to executive chairman of Amazon's board and is expected to dedicate more time toward initiatives like the Bezos Earth Fund, his Blue Origin spaceship company, The Washington Post and the Amazon Day 1 Fund. The company had kept its succession plans quiet, though onlookers speculated that either Jassy or Jeff Wilke, who retired from his post as head of Amazon's worldwide consumer business last August, would be Bezos' eventual successor.

  26. How will reopening affect Amazon? (21/05/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    I am also posting this on r/investing, so sorry about the duplicate if it applies to you. Hi all, I am looking forward to opening a position on Amazon but I still have a tiny small doubt in my mind, I am wondering if posting my doubt here can help me clear it or better understand it. The doubt I have is that wouldn't reopening cause a decrease of deliveries on amazon.com? amazon.com seems to be hot last year because people don't want to go to stores to buy stuff but once the store opens, wouldn't the traffic of amazon.com go down? Also, since people are at home more, AWS was getting a lot more traffic from their popular clients such as Netflix. But once the economy reopens, people won't stay at home as much and therefore not go on to AWS-hosted websites as much, right? Other services such as Twitch and Amazon Prime should have lower traffic too because of people spending less time at homes. The only few services I think of might benefit are Whole Foods and IMDb.com. But somehow, analysts seem very bullish on Amazon's short-term. I am seeing a bunch of $4000-$5000 price targets. Why are analysts giving such high price targets when so much of Amazon's revenue depends on the environment of staying at home? Thanks for sharing your thoughts!   submitted by   /u/usernaame001 [link]   [comments]

  27. Debating whether to buy first share of AMZN or more VTI (04/06/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    I’d like to gain more Amazon exposure but I have to buy full shares in my ISA. If I were to buy a share, my cash position would be down to <5%.

AMZN looks like the Best Buy to me right now but it’ll take me a couple months to gather some cash again so I guess what ik asking is; is it worth pulling the trigger now? Nothing but earnings beats but trading flat for 10 months with a historically low PE. Other than these I still plan on adding a total market index fund so technically I have exposure but just not as much. Do you guys think Amazon is a buy right now?

  30. Is Amazon's stock price too expensive? (24/04/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    I have many conversations with individuals who say that amazon is too expensive for them to invest in. Obviously this is not related to the metrics of the company but rather the fact that they don't want to fork over 3300 for one share. I own multiple shares of the company because I believe in what amazon is and will be in the future, but all the discussions I have where people refuse to buy into the company makes me think that it loses many opportunities because of its price. It's been stated that Bezos is probably keeping from a stock split because he wants to keep frequent trading by retail investors away, but I believe it might lead to an increase in stock price. If the price was lower, say after a split, would you be more inclined to purchase the stock?   submitted by   /u/iamslightlyinsecure [link]   [comments]

  31. Own Amazon Share or Sell (17/06/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    Good afternoon everyone! Just a little background information about myself. I’ve been investing in the stock market for a little over a year now and have been fortunate enough to build my portfolio into a sizable amount. I’m currently 22 years old and an L5 Area Manager at Amazon, where I’ve been employed for close to 4 years now. Upon accepting my Manager position I was informed I’d be given 15 Shares of Amazon. That equates to roughly $45,000 from the initial offer on top of yearly performance reviews that are conducted in April, depending on tenure, valuableness to the team and a few other factors you may be eligible for more shares. The shares become available after a certain time period or better known as the vest dates. So at this rate I will have all 15 shares released to me by November of 2023. However as stated earlier I will most likely receive more due to promotions and performance reviews so I will always have some shares waiting for me. My question for you, the Reddit Community, what exactly would you all do if these were your shares. I’ve developed a few idea scenarios that I will list below, but I’d love to hear what everyone’s take would be if they were in the same situation as I am in. 1) Pull out all AMZN shares and re-invest them into Dividend Stocks? - My portfolio is based around dividend paying companies because I want to be able to retire early and enjoy my life and in my opinion the best form of passive income. 2) Pull out all AMZN shares and re-invest them into growth companies? - I own a hefty amount of value in TSLA, AAPL & MSFT so I really wouldn’t have a problem with re-investing these stocks or something in similar value. Considering each share of Amazon can purchase a lot of value in each company. 3) Pull out all AMZN shares and throw them into real estate? - I’ve recently taken a liking into the real estate market, aside from the real estate market being at all-time high, I wouldn’t plan on owning real estate until a couple of years down the road when I’m able to pull out more Amazon shares. 4) Hold all shares of Amazon for life? - I often here my friends tell me that Amazon is and will continue to be the most dominate company in history and to a degree I understand. After working here for 4 years, 3 years in management, I can confidentially say Amazon is just beginning to grow and will continue to dominate the e-commerce industry for decades to come despite all anti-trust lawsuits. Again, I’d love to hear what you all think of this situation and maybe if anyone has ever been in a similar predicament. I appreciate all feedback and hope you all have a great day!   submitted by   /u/Prestigious-Swing512 [link]   [comments]

  32. Amazon is looking ready to break out past $3600???? $AMZN (18/02/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    ????????After spending a tremendous amount of time following Amazon which is one of the most popular holdings in stock portfolios that are outperforming all other portfolios it’s now fairly safe to say it set up to start to get near analyst price targets. If you look at the various analysts you will see you in just the last few weeks that at least five of the top 25 ranked analyst have a buyer recommendation on Amazon with predictions in several cases exceeding a $4000 price target. By all accounts Amazon should’ve soared after what can only be considered one of the greatest earnings reports of all time but instead I stayed relatively flat as sentiment has seemingly diminished amongst the retail investors. It’s impossible to not think that Jeff Bezos announcing his retirement can be anything other than bad news for Amazon however his replacement is also the same person that took Amazon into Amazon Web services which has proven to be An incredibly profitable segment of Amazons business. Jeffries has a price target of $4000 Oppenheimer has a price target of $4100 Wells Fargo has a price target a $4100 target Truest financial seems conservative at $3700 as a price target. RBC capital has a $3800 price target on Amazon. Everyone of the analyst for these five price targets is ranked in the top 25 analyst according to tip ranks so we’re not dealing with unknown people who are just pulling numbers out of thin air but rather proven analysts with a very solid track record. As of this morning’s reading the average price target and Amazon stock is just over $4100 a share. For me personally I have loaded up on longer-term Amazon options so I know that my money is already going to be made and in fact I probably have close to 50% of my portfolio in either Amazon stock or Amazon options but I don’t want to see everyone else missing the boat. I have seen numerous times in the last couple of years were Amazon has done literally nothing for days or weeks at a time sometimes even months at a time and then all of a sudden jumps up 3, 4 or even 5% in a single day and sometimes hire. If not for the Bezos retirement announcement I think Amazon would be trading much higher than where it currently is and now that the retail investor has finally had some time to digest this the only thing left to do is to take a look at Amazon itself as a company. It’s building It’s own delivery network and has now started buying airplanes on top of taking down every sprinter Mercedes truck they can possibly buy. As in any investment you should always do your own research but I suggest tip ranks as they do offer a lot of free information. I currently am up paying subscriber but for most people that’s not something you need to worry about. In most cases you can get a lot of insight just following the first and best 25 guys on the list. For the sake of improving a discussion I would be curious as to the opinions of those who are not interested in Amazon stock. I’m curious what the negative sentiment might be and seeing that the current sentiment is about 80% positive and 20% negative amongst individual investors there certainly are people that don’t like the stock so for the sake of having a better understanding as to what the purpose behind that decision is I’d be very curious to hear any opposing or negative thoughts? Is it that the knock on Amazon is related to and moving up so much in 2020 or perhaps the price earnings ratio is just too high? I genuinely want understand why I’m looking at something like it’s a phenomenal opportunity especially after the last earnings report yet other people don’t share the enthusiasm. While there are no guarantees in life I would ask people to bookmark this because I can’t even imagine the universe where the stock doesn’t get to $4000 within a year. On a final note I do apologize for any of these typos that I can’t correct courtesy of Siri. Edited only to fix some typos courtesy of Siri.   submitted by   /u/Canesfootball [link]   [comments]

  34. Amazon exploring opening outlets selling home goods, electronics (02/04/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    https://fortune.com/2021/04/01/amazon-outlets-discount-home-goods-electronics/ Amazon.com Inc. has explored opening discount retail stores selling a mix of home goods and electronics, a potentially significant expansion of the company’s growing portfolio of brick-and-mortar locations. The outlets would carry unsold inventory sitting in Amazon’s warehouses at steep discounts, according to two people familiar with the plans. The company has considered opening permanent stores, as well as pop-up locations in malls or parking lots, said the people. The plans were preliminary and under discussion last year, but the pandemic and new Fresh grocery chain forced many employees to focus on day-to-day operations. This is a very good idea. Unsold inventory occupy the space and will cost company time and money. By opening the discount retail stores, it will be able to sell all the unsold inventory at a fast pace and save more warehouse space for useful inventory. This is also a good reopening strategy trend, which open physical stores to attract more customers to buy amazon products and invite them to become prime member. Many retail stocks are currently near 52 week high, so amazon could this the discount retail stores strategy to compete with them and increase retail market share. Investors will like any idea that amazon could increase revenue and the stock will be more attractive.   submitted by   /u/coolcomfort123 [link]   [comments]

  36. Amazon spent $11 billion on video and music content last year, up from $7.8 billion in 2019 (15/04/2021 - Reddit Stocks)

This will help amazon to attract more prime members and let customers enjoy more quality contents fo paying prime membership. This is also a good move to help defend the competition from Netflix and Disney+.

  37. Amazon is shutting down its Prime Now fast delivery app (21/05/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    https://www.cnbc.com/2021/05/21/amazon-is-shutting-down-its-prime-now-fast-delivery-app.html Amazon said it's discontinue its stand-alone Prime Now app and website this year. The service launched in 2014 as a way for Prime members to get one- or two-hour delivery on a range of goods, from household essentials and books to toys or groceries. Shoppers will still be able to get fast delivery on the Amazon app or site. This is actually a good news. Some of my friends have been doing this before the pandemic and they said amazon is losing money due to this program. So Amazon is continually to focus more on the bottom line, and that consolidation from Sep 2020 until now cause the pe ratio dropped to a reasonable level. Investors should keep holding and consider adding more shares.   submitted by   /u/coolcomfort123 [link]   [comments]

  38. I predict Amazon will acquire Lyft within the next 18 months (09/07/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Lyft is five times cheaper to acquire than Uber. It has 35% of ridesharing marketshare in America and is rapidly growing in Canada—two of Amazon's biggest market. Currently, no major Western ridesharing platform is profitable. That's because it takes a ton of costly promotions and subsidies on both the rider and driver sides to grow a ridesharing platform. Amazon, however, could substantially reduce the high cost of new rider acquisition by just offering their over 100 million Prime members a discount for using Lyft over Uber. This would shift marketshare overnight. Then, on the driver side, Lyft drivers could be doing last mile order fulfillment for Prime Now and Amazon Restaurant when ride demand is low—effectively increasing driver wages through removing time spent waiting for a new passenger while also lowering Amazon's fulfillment costs. The operational efficiencies that come from owning both commerce and ridesharing would allow Amazon to become the most valuable company in the world. Uber and Amazon are already competing on a ton of fronts. AmazonFresh and UberEats, Uber freight and amazon prime delivery. My money is on Bezos to win though, they can shoulder the massive costs with AWS   submitted by   /u/Scorface [link]   [comments]

    Amazon grants 61,000 shares of stock to incoming CEO Andy Jassy (cnbc.com) PUBLISHED FRI, JUL 2 2021 4:53 PM EDT Jordan [email protected] KEY POINTS Andy Jassy gets a stock award worth $214 million at today’s price as he takes over as Amazon CEO. The award will vest over ten years. Jassy built up the Amazon Web Services cloud business that leads the market. In this article AMZN -1.48 (-0.04%) Amazon said in a filing on Friday that it will grant Andy Jassy 61,000 shares of stock on Monday, when he replaces Jeff Bezos as the online retailer’s second CEO. The shares will vest over a period of ten years. The grant represents a financial acknowledgment of a high-priority leadership change for one of the world’s top technology companies. Bezos founded Amazon in 1994 and is today the world’s richest person, with a net worth of nearly $200 billion, according to Bloomberg. Now he is handing over the entire company to a trusted executive who led Amazon Web Services since its inception, helping Amazon expand beyond commerce and making the company more profitable. After serving as Bezos’ shadow, Jassy led the company’s push into technology that companies could use to run computing workloads and store data in Amazon’s data centers, with the first services arriving in 2006. Now the company leads the market, with Microsoft, Google and other companies trying to catch up. The additional shares are worth $214 million at Amazon’s Friday closing price of $3.510.98 per share. In addition to the award, Jassy owns 0.02% of Amazon stock, worth more than $300 million, according to FactSet.

  48. I like Amazon but it's expensive (06/07/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    I understand no one can 100% predict stocks. But can someone give me an informed opinion of when they would advise to invest into amazon to get the most bang for my buck or correct my understanding of their p/e ratio and market cap, and how to use this info. I have some bad luck ATM I invest in small amounts as practice then that stock just drops lol, I'm afraid Amazon gonna do that to me as well. Yes I understand nothing is linear straight line. At this time Market cap = 1.85T P/E ratio = 66.816 Volume = 5m I understand what the definitions of market cap, p/e, etc, but not how to apply them because of this for example, "The P/E ratio can be used to compare two or more companies. This can be useful given that a company’s stock price, in and of itself, tells you nothing about the company’s overall valuation." So how do you tell if a stock (amazon) is over valued, or you can't that's why the stock market is a gamble?   submitted by   /u/SnacksRLife [link]   [comments]

  49. Amazon Gains As Morgan Stanley Paints Bullish Scenario With $6,000 Target (17/05/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    'Investing.com – Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) shares rose in a weak market after Morgan Stanley 's (NYSE:MS) latest bullish target for the stock: $6,000 by 2023. According to StreetInsider, Morgan Stanley analyst Brian Nowak reiterated his overweight rating on Amazon with a target of $4,500, while going on to make a case for the $6,000 per share mark. The online retailer and cloud services provider currently trades at around 1.2 times 2022 earnings on a PEG basis, an approximately 30% discount to its median tech peer group. Nowak believes that with Amazon’s scaling profitability and given its discount relative to the peer group, the stock would warrant a $4,500 level at even 1.7 times PEG, according to StreetInsider. But this may not be enough. Factors like a large addressable market across Amazon’s business lines, including retail, advertising, logistics, healthcare, cloud, autonomous driving and the rising user base of its Prime service all combine to ask for an even higher target for the company’s stock price, the analyst believes, as per StreetInsider. "These factors could justify a higher PEG, and a PEG of ~2-2.5X would imply a ~$5,000-$6,000 share price within the next 12 months (potentially a double from here)," Nowak wrote.
